At 7pm two will enter, one will leave. Thunderdome comes to Canberra

By johnboy - 26 June 2013 25

Julia Gillard has called a leadership vote for 7pm tonight (ever better at tactics than strategy).

She’s also demanding the loser retire to the study to avail themselves of a loaded revolver (metaphorically speaking).

State of Origin is about to be overshadowed by a more brutal struggle here in Canberra.

Speaking as a non-ALP supporter horrified at the idea of Abbott becoming PM…..BBOOORRRRIIINNGGGGG!

There is no national debate about policy; about a need to regulate the media, to protect society from gambling, to stop people drowning at sea trying to reach Australia, about WTF we are doing to protect fellow-Aussie Assange, about giving Indonesia foreign aid when that country has an enormous miltiary budget and is engaged on a campaign of genocide against West Papuans, but most importantly, about super-profits being made mostly foreign individuals off the explouitation of Australian minerals.

No. All we get is crap about the ALP’s leadership.

Nailed it!

Gillard’s gone.

Shorten is weasel.

Thumper, I find that comment totally inappropriate and highly offensive.

Weasels have much higher moral standards than that prick Shorten will ever have.

The people of Australia have run a very poor last in this challenge of ego’s.

Its sad that the main election issue at the moment is about personalities, not policies.

To vote Labour now would be to reward three years of ceaseless destabilisation. I was going to vote ALP in Eden-Monaro, but now I’d vote for Pauline Hanson before Rudd.

Remember what it was like last time? Do you reckon egocentric maniacs change their spots?

Who cares, State of Origin is on…..

It’s interesting to hear that the loser will apparently leave politics. Whether or not it’s actually true remains to be seen.

Thumper 7:27 pm 26 Jun 13

Gillard’s gone.

Shorten is weasel.

I’m amused by the poll Today Tonight just had up… Less than 5% of the public that voted backed Gillard for PM.

Mysteryman 6:55 pm 26 Jun 13

I’m going to call it now.

Goodbye, Gillard. I think she knew she didn’t have the numbers when she called the spill earlier this afternoon.

Diggety 6:55 pm 26 Jun 13

That’s what you get for DividingTheJoint.

Gillard made some terrible mistakes the last few months on the advice of angry fringe groups – big mistake.

miz 6:44 pm 26 Jun 13

Yes but it took guts to change sides (no pun intended)!

Shorten Is Knifing The Pm

I would like to see a Highlander style finale.
